Co-curricular refers to activities, programs, and learning experiences that complement, in some way, what students are learning in school—i.e., experiences that are connected to or mirror the academic curriculum.
In that spirit, students will work with their faculty to attend a signature event for fall semester 2020 that works best for them. The faculty member will approve and track the signature event component for the class.
Some examples of events would include:

History Speaks Lecture
Thursday, November 12
Robert W. Fieseler, “Suburban Curtain: How Three Surprising Locals Expanded the ‘Naperville Dream’ to All Peoples.”
Naperville, not unlike many American small towns that became large suburbs, has seen its share of discrimination in its almost 200-year long history. Focusing on three individuals of conscience, Naperville historian Robert “Bobby” Fieseler will tell the story of how this once “lily-white” town became a melting pot of middleclass diversity in the 21st century. This lecture is a partnership with Naper Settlement and North Central College Cultural Events.
Registration opens September 15 at www.napersettlement.org. Registration is free.
Co-sponsored by Naper Settlement and North Central College. Contact Professor Judith Brodhead at email@example.com for more information.

TEDxNorthCentral College is proud to host Countdown, a global TED initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into action. The goal: To build a better future by cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 in the race to a zero-carbon world – a world that is safer, cleaner and fairer for everyone.
The ongoing health and economic crises are reminding us of an important fact: We’re all part of the same fragile system, dependent on nature and one another. As we look to the future, we must build back better and emerge more sustainable and resilient than before.
Join TEDxNorthCentralCollege on October 16th. live via Zoom, for a curated event featuring global talks from TED’s Countdown event, along with North Central alumni and campus leaders sharing their expertise and ideas for action.
What is TEDx?
TEDx events are independently-organized, licensed TED-like events that foster learning, innovation and wonder, and bring together local communities to spark conversation around ideas worth spreading.
As a comprehensive liberal arts college, North Central values a broad-based, interdisciplinary education that provides an ideal environment for the exchange of ideas. When the power of interdisciplinary learning is combined with a passion for the common good, the results are innovative solutions for lasting social impact. This is what you can expect from TEDxNorthCentralCollege.

ABOUT THE SHOW:
Winner of the 1998 Pulitzer Prize, Paula Vogel's How I Learned to Drive was described in the New York Times as a "...lovely, harrowing guide to the crippling persistence of one woman's memories." The play follows the dangerous sexual relationship between a girl and her uncle from her adolescence through becoming an adult, and how the rest of the family helps, and fails, her. Our virtual production will bring the intimacy, humor, and horror of the play to the forefront. Paula Vogel said she intended the play, "to get the audience to go along for a ride they wouldn't ordinarily take, or don't even know they're taking.", and that's the opportunity we have- to pull the audience in for an unexpected, devastating journey.
How I Learned to Drive engages with sensitive content that includes sexual assault, pedophilia, and child abuse. It is intended for mature audiences.
For North Central College students and employees who have experienced abuse in their lives, the Dyson Wellness Center offers short-term individual, group and couples counseling services, as well as referrals to off-campus resources.
